The Israeli police prevented the female students of Masateb from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque on Monday morning. Dozens of students were gathered at the Gates of Al-Aqsa and chanted “God is Great”. They requested to enter Al-Aqsa but the police requested them to leave their personal IDs at the Gates. The female Marabouts explained that some IDs have been detained since Sunday in Al-Qishleh police station and that they were detained for several hours at the police station when they went to take the IDs and never got them. They added that the police request the females to go to Al-Qishleh and get their IDs before entering Al-Aqsa and some of them had their IDs that were given back to them by the police but they still were denied entrance. The Israeli police tightened its procedures around 10 a.m. and prevented many young men from entering Al-Aqsa Mosque.
